The circus is coming to town and the Monaco royals are getting set for their traditional festival.
Princess Stephanie was pictured visiting elephant trainer Flavio Togni from the American Circus Troupe ahead of the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival.
The event, held in Monaco, is in its 35th year and will take place between January 20 to January 30.
Princess Stephanie has a long standing association with the circus, as she is the royal patron of the festival.
She has also been married to a circus performer and romantically involved with an elephant trainer in the past.
